Horace Greeley and BrlKliuni
THE JI0IUI0K LEADER'S VIEWS.
During Mr. Greelej'a journey ncros3 tbe continent
in 1E63, he stopped Tor a few day at Salt
Lake City, nnd whila there bad tin interview is
with Brigbam Young, in which he took occasion
to inqairo particularly into tbe doctrines and
policy of tbe Mormon Church. Tbe following is
the full report of the conversation as given by
Mr. Greeley. AVe commend it to our readers ns of
well worth a careful reading :
My friend. Dr. liernbisel, M.C., took me this
afternoon, by appointment, lo meet Brigbam
Young, President of tbe Mormon Church, who
had expressed a willingness to receive inc at 2
p. in. We were very cordially welcomed at the its
doot by tbe President, who led us into the second-story
parlor Of the largest of bis bouses (be
bus three), where I was introduced lo Heber C.
Kimball, (Jen. Wells, Gen. Ferguson. Albert it,
Carringtoo, Klias Smith, und several other
men in the cburcb, with two full-grown Bons
of tbe President. After some unimportant conversation,
on general topics, I staled lhat I had
come in quest of fuller knowledge respecting the is
doclriues and policy of the Mormon Churcb.'and
would like lo ask eome questions bearing directly
on these, if there were no objection.
Young, avowing his willingness to respond
to all perliuent inquiries, tbe conversation proceeded,
substantially as follows :
11. G. Am I to regard Mormonism (so-called)
as a new religion ; or as simply a new development
of Christianity T
B. Y. We bold that there can be no true
Christian Church without a priesthood directly
commissioned by and in immediate communication
with the Soo of God and Saviour of
Such a church is that of the Latter-Day
Saints, called by their enemies Mormons. We
know no other lhat even pretends to have pre
sent and direct revelations ot bod a will.
II. G. Then I am to understand that you regard
all other churches professing to be Christian,
as tbe church of Home regards all churches
not in communion with iuelf as schismatic,
heretical cud out of the way uf sulvalion ?
B. Y. Yes, substantially.
11. G. Apart from this, in what respect do
your doctrines differ eseentially from those of our
orthodox Protestant Churches the Baptist or
Methodist, tor example ?
B. Y. We hold the doctrines of Christianity
as revealed in tbe Old and New Testaments,
io tbe Book of Mormon, which teaches the same
cardiual truths, and those only.
II. G. Do you believe in the doctrine of the
B. Y. We do ; but not exactly as it is held
by other churches. We believe tn the Father,
Sou aid the Holy Ghost, ns equal, but not identical,
not ns one perron (being). We believe in
all the Btbie teaches oo ibis subject.
II. G. Do you believe in a personal Devil, a
distinct, conscious, spiritual being, whose nature
and ucts are essentially mahgnunt aud evil ? '
B. Y. We do.
II. G. Do you hold the doctrino of eternal
D. Y. We do ; though perhaps not exactly
as other churches do. Wo belieio it as tbe
Bible teaches it.
II. G. I understand that you regard baptism
by immersion us essential ?
B. Y. Wo do.
II. G. Do you practico infant baptism ?
B. Y. No.
II. G. Do you make removal to these valleys
obligatory on your converts !
B. Y. They would consider themselves greatly
aggrieved if they were not invited hither.
We hold to such a gathering together uf God's
people as the Bible foretells, and that this is tho
place, and now is the time appointed for its consummation.
U. G. The predictions to which you refer
have usually, I think, been understood lo indicate
Jerusalem (or Judea) as the place of such
11. Y. Yes, for tho Jews ; not for others.
II. G. What is the position of your church
with respect to slavery ?
B. Y. We consider it of Di'vioe institution,
and not to be abolished until the curse pronounced
on Ham shall have been removed from his
H. G. Are any slaves now held in this territory?
B. Y. There are.
II. G. Do your territorial laws uphold slavery?
B. Y. Those laws are printed, vou can read
for yourself. If slaves are brought here by those
nbo owned them in the States, we do not favor
their escape from tbe service of those owners.
II. G. Am I to infer that Utah, if admitted
as a member of tbe Federal Union, will be a
B. Y. No ; she will be a free State. Slavery
here would prove useless and unprofitable. I regard
it geuerally as a curse to tbe masters. I
myself hire many laborers, and pay them fair
wages; 1 could not afford to own them. I can
do better than subject myself to an obligation to
feed and clothe their families, to provide and care
for them in sickness and health. Utah is not
adapted to slave labor.
11. G. Let me now be enlightened with regard
more especially to your church polity. I
understand that you require each member to pay
over one-tenth of all he produces or earns to tbe
B. Y. That is a requirement of our faith.
There is no compulsion us to the payment. Each
member acts in tbe premises according .to
his pleasure, under the dictates of his own conscience.
H. G. What is done with the proceeds of
this tuning I
15. I. I art of it is devoted to building tem
ples and other places of worship ; part to helping
tbe pour and needy converts on their way to
this country ; and tbe largest portion to tbe support
of the poor among tbe Saints.
II. G. Is none of it paid to bishops and other
dignitaries of the churches ?
B. Y. Not one penny. No bishop, no elder,
oo deacon, or other church officer, receives any
compensation for His official services. A bishop
is often required to put bis hand in his own
and provide therefrom fur the poor cf his
charge ; but he never receives anything for his
II, G. How then do your ministers live ?
B. Y. By the labor of their own hands, like
the first apostles. Evety bishop, every elder,
may be daily seen at work in the fiekl or the
shop, like his neighbors ; every minister of tbe
church has his proper calling, by which he earns
the bread of bis family; he who cannot or will
Dot do the church's work for nothing is not
wanted in her service ; even our lawyers (pointing
to Gen. Ferguson and another present, wbo
are the regular lawyers of tbe church) are paid
rjothing for their services ; I am tbe only person
io who has not a regular calling apart
from tbe church's service, and 1 never received
one farthing from her treasury ; if I obtain anything
from her I am charged with
and :ay or it, just as any one else would ; tbe
clerks in the are paid like other
clerks, but no one is ever paid for any service
pertaining to the ministry, We think a man
-who cannot make his living aside from the .ministry
of Christ, unsuited to that office. I am
called rich, and consider mvself worth 250.000 :
.but no dollar of it was ever paid me by tbe
ccurcD, or lor any service as a minister of tbe
everlasting gospel. 1 lost nearly all I had when
we were broken op in Missouri, and driven from
that State. I was nearly stripped again when
Joseph Smith was murdered, and we were driven
from Illinois ; bet nothing was ever made op
to me by tbe church, nor by any one. I believe
I know how to acquire property, and how to
take care of it.
H. G. Can yon give me any rational
nation ol me aversion and hatred wita which
your people are" generally regarded by those
among whom they have lived, and with whom
they hare been brought directly in contact ?
B. Y. No other explanation than is afforded
by tbe crucifixion of Christ and the kindred
treatment of God's ministers, prophets and saints
in all ages.
U. G. I know that a now sect is always descried
and traduced ; that tt is hardly ever deemed
respectablo to belong to one ; that the Baptists,
Quakers, Methodists, Uoiversaltsts, etc,
have each in their turn been regarded, in tbe infancy
of their sect, as tbe offscouring of the earlb;
I cannot remember lhat either uf them were
ever generally represented and awarded by the
older sects of iheir early days, as thieves, rob
IS. Y. If you will consult tho contemporary
Jenish accounts of the life and arts of Jesus
Christ, you will Cud that fie and His disciples
were Lccused of every abomiouble deed and purpose,
robbery and murder included. Such a work
still extant, and may be found by those nho
U. G. What do you say of tho so-called
or destroying Angels, belonging to "your
B. Y. Whst do you say ? 1 know of no 8uch
band, no such persons or organization. I bear
tbem only in tbe slanders of our enemies.
II. G. With regard, then, to the grave question
on which your doctrines and practices are
avowedly at war with those of the Christian
world lhat of a plurality of wives is tbe system
of your church acceptable to tho majority of
B V. They could not bo more averse to it
than I was when it was first revealed to mo as
the Divine will. I think they generally accept
as i uo, as me will ol uoa.
11. G. How general is polygamy among you?
B. Y. I could nut say. Some of thoso present
(beads of tbe Church) have each but one
wile ; utuers nave more ; eacu determines wual
his individual duly.
II. G. What is tbe largest number of wives
belonging to any one man ?
B. Y. I have fifteen , I know no one who
has mure; but some of these sealed lo me are
old ladies whom 1 regard rather as mothers than
wives, but whom I bave taken home to cherish
II. G. Dues not tbe Apostle Paul say that a
bishop should be husband of one wife?
B. Y. So we hold." We do not regard nuy
but a married uian us fitted fur tho office of
bishop. But the Apostle does not forbid a bishop
having mure wives than one.
11. G. Does not Christ say that be who pots
away bis wife, or marries une whom another has
put uway, commits ailultery ?
B. Y. Yes, und I hold that no man should
ever put away a wife except for udultery nut
ulwuys even fur that. Such is my individual
view of the matter. I do nut always say that
wives bave uuver been put away in our cnurch,
but that I do uot approve ol the. practice.
II. G. How do you regard what is commonly
termed the Christian Sabbath ?
B- Y. As a divinely appointed day of rest.
We enjoin to rest from secular labor on that day.
We would have no man enslaved to the Sabbath,
but we enjoin all to respect and enjoy it.
The Cost ufa 'iiHliiomtblo Woman's
Sala tells about a young Frenchman, who, be
ing engaged to a beautiful creature, happened to
get a glimpse in time of her laundry bill. In
horror aod amazement he made a rapid calculation.
To support her and her linens it would be
necessary to commit forgery. So he I roko off
the match in despair. This sounds extravagant
enough, anJ yet here is the bill of items furnished
by one nbo knows all about the necessary
outfit of a geiitoel lady or the period :

The terrible strife between tho Clericals and
Liberals of Switzetland still rages with unabated
violence. Who," said a stranger to the Pre
sident of a canton, who at a stale banquet had
risen to greet a late guest with effusion, " who is
that rather mutton-headed gentleman you have
just welcomed V .My predecessor, a tool of
Romish tyranny. At the election before, he de
feated me by spreading a hellish calumny that I
bad assisted at the murder of the hostages. lie's
a very good fellow though, and my brother-in-law.
But, of course, in cantonal politics, when I
come iti, tho policy of my predecessor is reversed.
If be was elected, there would be a similiar action
on bis side." - What direction does this
change of policy take T" " I will explain. For
many years the canton has been repairing the
town tall and tbe cathedral. When 1 am in
power, 1 push on the repairs of the town ball ;
when that minion of a debased heirarchy secures
tbe office, he stops tbe work and repairs tbe
cathedral. You see tbe difference t" "Yes,"
" I forgot to add that it is the same contractor
wbo has tbe contracts for repairing both buildings.
To the victors belong tbe spoils."
Cork is likely to supercede the use of India-rubber
in machinery, especially where the pressure
is very great. A pressure of great power
will destroy India-rubber, causing it to break or
split np into small pieces, losing its elasticity
entirely. No such result lollowa in the case of
cork, properly prepared. Cork is first soaked in
a m'lture of water and molasses, which gives it
some softness aod permanent moisture. It is
then cut into discs eight inches in diameter. As
many of these as are needed are put into a cast-iron
box, an iron lid applied, lid and corks
a bole in the centre, tbe corks are pressed
down to half their original thickness, a bolt 13
ran through the centre end nuts and screws bold
tbem in place. A spring thus formed, tested by
a ten-tons pressure, shows an elasticity like compressed
Enveloped Letters. When letters are enclosed
in od envelope, the address should be inscribed
as well on the letter itself as on the
envelope otherwise, the loss of tho envelope
may cause grave mistakes and serious confusion,
or may leave the letter for an anonymous claimant.
We heard a deceased chancellor say that
he knew an important law case, which came very
near being lost to tbe party (ultimately successful)
by the loss of an envelope, leaving it
to whom tbe missive had been addressed.
Recently, too, we learn from an exchange paper,
that a stolen mail had been recovered with all
the envelopes torn off the letters, and the postmaster
knew not where to seod many of them.
These are 14,441 persons in England members
of the Society of Friends. Lart year they
numbered 14,254, so that they have slightly increased
of late. Of 95 members who married
last year, 49 were united to persons not belonging
to their society, and these mixed marriages
are probably not favorable to tbe perpetuation
of Qcakerdom. There is one fact worthy of
note respecting Quakers, namely, that they are
a long lived race. .The rate of mortality among
tbem is remarkably low only 18 per 1 ,000 for
the last year.
Dcrixo tbe cast rear the number of original
advertisements for missing friends, or next of
kin, in tbe London limes, was 7UO,and tbe
number of persons nanted therein about 3000.
The Treasury Solicitor advertised for the next
kin of 26 persons. The amount of money reverting
to tbe Crown by reason ol these intestacies
is seldom stated ; bat in one case, Mrs.
Helen Blake's, it amounted to 8700.000. From
one of these advertisements it appears that tbe
heirs of a person wbo emigrated to America in
1683 are wanted to claim 52,000,000 1
The facts regarding the Indian famine are
heartrending. Some 30,000,000 people live in
the famine belt, and of these 3,000,000 ore expected '
to die. But pestilence follows famine,
and the mortality will be much greater than this
estimate. In Ireland, with a population of 8.-000,000
only, nearly 2.000,000 perished br famine
and pestilence, in 1846-48, although Great
with all its wealth, was within a stone's
throw, so to speuk. and Europe, populous and
weneroas, wes almost, within hailing distance.
Now, if such mortality happened in tbe case of
Ireland, with its small population and lavorable
conditions of climate, backed by ibe vigorous
health of its people, what may be expected
among the feeble aod enervated people of southern
India? The British government has done,
and is doing its ntinost to meet tbe emergency,
but it is impossible to find bread and medical
attendance fur so many humuu beings, all urgently
requiring aid. India bas been accustomed to
famines and pestilence, but nover before bave
its rulers displaced the humanity which now
characterizes British role. There have beon
faults in English administration in India, but"
with all its arrogance it fias been beneficent.
The natives of that vast country bave prospered
under it ; and ibe outcome of this famine may
be a radical change In its land tenure, just as tho
Incumbered Estates Court broke up tbe land
monopoly tn Ireland after tbe famino there.
A I'lcoua Upitx.
Tbe following curious epitaph records the sad
fate of a youth who lost his life by a too free indulgence
in fruit pie :
Ctfrranr bare cheeked tho current of my blood,
And ismes brought rus to be ouried here ;
fears have jiar'cf off my body's hardihood.
And pluna and plumbtrt tpart not one so tpart.
Fain would Iftija tny fall ; to fair a. fan
Luteal not bate, jet 'tis afrtsoH good.
Gilt will not long bide guilt, suob thin washed mart
ll'ear quickly, and its rude touch soon is rued.
Grate on my yrare some sentence grave and terse
That lies not as it lie upon my clay,
But In some gentle strum of iiasrraineif verse,
Prayi all to pity a poor patty's picy,
Heheanei I was fruitful to my heane,
i'ellt that my days are told, and louu I'm toll'd away.
